FXU Raise and Donate were nominated for two national awards at the annual NUS RAG (Raise and Give) Conference. They were also jointly nominated with the FXU Islamic Society for the work on the Believe and Do Good Campaign, which saw over 100 students donate blood, 122kg of food donated to a local food bank and many many more inspiring acts of good. Whilst FXU RAD weren’t successful in winning either of the national awards, even to have been nominated for 2 after just one year of being an official fundraising group is an outstanding achievement.
